The Net Worth of CJ SO COOL

How rich is CJ SO COOL? As of early-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $4 million, earned through a successful career on YouTube. He often features viral videos in his channel, and in which he has also collaborated with other YouTube personalities. As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.

Early Life and YouTube Beginnings

Very little is known about CJ SO COOL’s childhood and family. Even details about his education is unknown. While he was born in Gary, his family later moved to Las Vegas where he would grow up with two siblings. He has a younger brother who would also later venture into the world of YouTube content creation.

While he was still studying, he became very interested in posting content for the website YouTube, which at the time was gaining a lot of popularity. The video sharing website is owned by Google and allows users to upload their own videos, which can then be viewed by others who can comment on and rate the video. They also have the capability of subscribing to channels they like. YouTube has become one of the most popular websites in the world, and has become a great source of video content including user generated videos, music videos, movie trailers, live streams, and video blogs. There are numerous individual users, companies, and corporations that have established themselves on the website.


Reaction Channel

CJ created his own channel and started making a few videos, but he never really gained any traction. His first channel only managed to get 35,000 views, and he moved away from YouTube for a short period of time. In the meantime, he completed his education and began working as a dealer in casinos, on various card-related games, but never really wanted to have a long term career there. He instead dreamed of returning back to YouTube.

In 2014, with his brother starting to gain a bit of fame on YouTube, his brother helped him establish his second channel called CJ SO COOL. He began posting various types of videos more focused on video blog content. He did gaming videos, challenge videos, and a few videos in which he communicated with his viewers. After a few months, he started to watch viral videos and filming his reaction to the videos which started to earn him high amounts of views. Realizing that it was the content that people noticed, he started making more reaction videos.

YouTube Content

As he started a family, CJ started to feature more of his family in his videos. His reaction videos were also starting to lose traction, so he returned to including more vlog content. He also became a fan of doing pranks, since when it has become his most watched type of content, often featuring his children involved in the pranks or the ones being pranked. While this has lifted his fame and increased his net worth, it has also attracted a lot of controversy.

He has been criticized by viewers and fellow YouTubers, stating that he’s been getting views that were supposed to be intended for the videos he’s been reacting to. He also underwent a lot of scrutiny when he posted a video in which he pranked his kids by feeding them laxatives and then started laughing when they began to have stomach problems. The video was meant to entertain, but no one found it funny, especially since it came at the expense of children. Online petitions began requesting that the video be taken down and that his children be removed from his custody. He’s also suffered at the hands of hackers though has managed to retain his channel and content through each incident.

Personal Life and YouTube

For his personal life, it is known that CJ SO COOL is married to Charlene “Royalty” Johnson and they have been together for a long time. She has been a regular feature of his channel since its beginning and has also become a popular social media personality, earning over a million subscribers on Instagram. According to him, they met in the Las Vegas casino Planet Hollywood, and have been together since.

They have four children, though none of their children are from their relationship. He has a daughter from a previous relationship while the other three are stepchildren from Royalty’s previous relationship. He recently announced that he was going to have a child with his wife, their first together. They reside in Las Vegas in a four acre mansion with 12 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, and two guest houses. He is also known to own several luxury cars and all of his riches were gained thanks to his online earnings. Similar to numerous YouTube personalities, he is highly active online through accounts on Instagram. He mainly posts about his day to day endeavors which give fans a peek into his luxurious lifestyle.
